I’ve been married to my husband for 44 years.  We have 5 wonderful children and 10 awesome grandchildren.  We moved back to Utah 3 years ago to be closer to family.  When I’m not working at Ascend, I’m at home baking or enjoying nature.

I have three amazing kids and two very supportive dogs and a cat!  I love learning about the medical field and watching it advance in helping our quality of life. I have always worked in the medical field starting as a CNA, PTA, OTA, Dental Assistant, Surgical Technician, and now a rTMS tech here at Ascend Counseling and Wellness.

Hi I am the front desk manager for Ascend Hurricane & Wellness. 

I am currently living in Hurricane Utah. I chose to live here because of the year round outdoor activities. I love being active and here in Southern Utah I am able to do lots of exciting things with my friends and family. I love to hike, go to the lake, and I love my dog & my two cats. 

I love to learn new things & I never want to be bored. I always have projects to do that give me purpose. I do woodworking in my spare time. I build bedroom sets, cutting boards, shelves and just about anything that you can build out of wood. Currently I am helping Ascend counseling & Wellness organize an office and I am remodeling my apartment. 

When you come to the Hurricane office I will be your first contact welcoming you to our office! Come say hi anytime I would love to meet you.
